PTI hop card, I decided to use them to try out Make It Monday #206: Stamping and Mixing Patterns. Patterns are kind of a weakness for me, but it's always good to stretch yourself, right? The card turned out a lot busier than I usually prefer, but I suppose that was to be expected since I was covering the entire thing with various patterns. Had time allowed I think I would have liked to try again using the patterns in more of my typical simple style. Sometimes when I try something new I sort of lose "me" in the card, and I can always tell when I'm finished. Regardless, I learned a few new things, stepped out of my comfort zone, and enjoyed pulling out some NBUS to create my patterned papers.
Darnell's latest NBUS Challenge #4. This is the first time that teeny tiny cupcake has ever seen ink, and I also used PTI's Polka Dot Parade #12 for the first time. Although I still feels like I haven't really used the set yet because I turned one of the candles over and just stamped the backside, so I would have a fatter stripe for my patterned paper. I'm also linking this up for the Simon Says Wednesday "Anything Goes Challenge". I've got a few things to check off my list before I can turn in for the night, so I better run. I hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!
